Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long does it take to remove lock nuts?

    As there are so many types of locking nuts it is hard to give an exact removal time. It can take anything from 10 minutes to 1 hour to remove a locking wheel nut or bolt without the original key. It all depends on the type of locking nut, the existing damage, how tight the nut is and what removal methods are required. 

  • Should I try to remove my own lock nuts at home?

    Many of the suggested DIY removal techniques found on car forums, Youtube and Google simply do not work on the modern type wheel nuts, the Mcgard style for example. Hammering a slightly narrower socket on top of the locking wheel nut will only work on a few of the older style bolts when they have not been over tightened and there is enough access round the outside of the bolt.

    Manufactures of both alloy wheels and locking wheel nuts/bolts have re-designed both wheels and bolts years ago so that now, in virtually all cases, this approach will not work.
    This will inevitably damage your wheel and causes further damage to the locking nut head, therefore making it harder for us to remove.

    No, we will not damage your alloy wheel when removing locking nuts or bolts.  Our techniques ensure we do not come in to contact with the wheel.
